Violet celebrated her 10-week birthday on Friday and she did it with style. With all the movies nominated I needed to do “quick catch-up movie madness” and who better to join me? Violet! That ‘s right my dog. We ventured out to The Reader, Slum Dog Millionaire, Doubt, and something light: Confessions of a Shopaholic. Can you believe it, my baby girl can sit still to watch a two-hour movie? Now I’m sure I was breaking some rules by bringing her in, but unless you knew that I was not carrying a designer carrying case as a gym bag, no one second-guessed me or stopped me. So in we went. It was a chance I was willing to take, as it was impossible to find a babysitter during the day. That said, I have always loved matinees as it allows you to have a light lunch before venturing to the theater. And even better: no crowds. We both love Kate Winslet, as Violet joined my love affair for her. Did you see her in the Vanity Fair issue? How can you not love her or her work. Kate, call me!
